It has recently been acknowledged that Beech Group staff
have achieved the Arca Gold Training Award. Our staff achieved an average scoring of 92.5%. This is a considerable achievement and we are all justifiably pleased. Arca write: ‘it is a testament to all your staff that have attained a higher than average score
in training sessions to achieve this award’.
What have we done? We’ve gone and sponsored Joel McCann‘s football team Oval FC again… which in the past has always been the kiss of death. We’re always bringing things down – but isn’t that the sign of a quality demolition group?
At the end of the season Oval FC will be relegated and next year under the wing of a different sponsor they will rise again to success.
After months of work with the brilliant H10 Marketing to get things exactly how we wanted them, Beech Group’s new training website has gone live. The site was built from the ground up with their expert advice and guidance about how to structure it, and we have to say the result is incredible.
It features comprehensive coverage of our courses and facilities, and thanks to H10 the design is slick and stylish. We’re proud to have the new site representing our training division, so follow this link to take a look and let us know what you think!
We’re constantly working to expand the range of courses we offer, so keep an eye out and subscribe to our newsletter for further updates.
During 2018, Beech set up a fund called the 190 Club aiming to attract 190 companies or individuals to donate £190 per year in return for being incorporated in a raffle every month for three prizes of £500, £300 and £200. This was a smashing success, as we managed to raise £20,000 for Feeding Britain over the year.
As you can see in the photo above, The Johnson Foundation generously matched what the 190 Club raised in 2018, bringing the total donated to Feeding Britain up to an astonishing £40,000!
Every single penny raised will go to Feeding Britain: a charity seeking to try and solve the problems of hunger, homelessness and cold in a constructive way. Along with many other important projects, Feeding Britain raise much-needed funds and provide advice for people in the Wirral struggling to buy food, recently opening the Number 7 cafe and supermarket in Birkenhead.
“One gesture like this when multiplied over many companies/individuals is making a difference.” – Chris Wainwright, MD
Our MD Chris Wainright and Kate Eugeni from the Johnson Foundation presented the two £20,000 cheques to Frank Field in front of the Number Seven cafe in Birkenhead. The Number Seven opened its doors in late 2018, as part of the Birkenhead branch of Feeding Britain’s mission to help. It operates as not only a cafe but as a non-profit citizen’s supermarket and a hub for practical advice for those who are struggling.
The Number Seven cafe is just one example among many projects and initiatives that Feeding Britain is developing to address poverty in the UK. It’s wonderful to know that the money raised will be put to real, practical use and help people all over the country. Here’s to an even better 2019 with even more raised through the 190 Club!
If you would like to join the 190 Club in 2019, or request more information, please contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
